KL Rahul clarifies he did not smash Pandya to take revenge of Koffee episode but it was to help his family get Swiggy 6's discount

Mumbai. Kings XI Punjab batsman KL Rahul brought in his maiden IPL ton in a losing contest against Mumbai Indians on Wednesday night at the Wankhede stadium.

As social media dragged Hardik Pandya, calling it a “perfect revenge” from Rahul for the backlash and suspension the duo received after inappropriate remarks on the TV show ‘Koffee with Karan’, the audience seated at the Wankhede stadium witnessed the complete opposite. Hardik Pandya, who was shown no mercy by Rahul earlier, hugged it out and patted the batsman for his efforts.

Rahul got a lot of congratulatory messages after the innings. Most of them were memes or photos showing how he gave it back to Pandya and evened out the bashing he got due to Pandya after the Koffee episode. Rahul spoke to the Faking News reporter and had this to say, “It was funny when I read some of the messages. Even my teammates in the dugout told me that finally, you have taken revenge and all. But the motivation behind my innings was not the Koffee episode, it was, in fact, the discount from SWIGGY after a batsman hits a six in IPL. I just wanted to help my family get as much discount as possible and hence the sixes.”

Lot many crazy things are happening in the country due to Swiggy 6’s offer with some fans breaking their TV in frustration as batsmen that day were hitting only 4s and no 6s. Even when Andre Russell was smashing sixes on almost all deliveries, the stadium was getting empty with every six he hit. It was only later that teams realized that fans were going out to avail the SWIGGY offer.

I mean why not, the offers and discounts market is so cluttered that simple and easy to avail offers like the one provided by SWIGGY is a sure shot hit.

For people who want to help their families just like how Rahul did Swiggy has introduced a ‘Swiggy 6’s‘ offer wherein you get a 60 percent discount if you order food within six minutes after a player has hit a six. So this IPL, it is not just the players who will get instant rewards and gratification.
